‘Septic penises fell off’

‘Six more youths have lost their penises as a result of bungled circumcisions in the Eastern Cape.

Provincial health department spokesperson Sizwe Kupelo said 18 would-be initiates were admitted to hospital in Port St Johns last week and four had to have their septic penises amputated. [..]

Kupelo said the death toll in the current winter circumcision season in the province now stood at seven.

Five of the deaths were the direct results of circumcisions; one youth was murdered at a school and another died in a fire at a school in the East London area.’
